I guess this is related to this.

If you hate Alica Keys, don't listen, I hate it too.

This has sent Bond down to a new low.

Ummmm... sure it's not on my favorite song list but... it's alright. I give it at least 3/5 stars.

Hmmm Hello? I guess you are not a Bond fan at all... this movie is like 2 years old now!

At first I got really scared at this strange song. Later, tho, somewhat I learned to appreciate it. It feels fresh and special, yet very "Bond". Alicia Keys don't fits in the song to me, but I like Jack White's touch.

Either there are a lot of repressed memories here, or some of you haven't been keeping up with Bond. Laughing Can't say I blame you after Die Another Day. This was the theme from Quantum of Solace, and it's the worst part of a forgettable movie. Mad

I actually like the music- the fuzz guitar has a very Bondish feel to it, and it's heavy on the orchestra, unlike Die Another Day's synthy strings. The lyrics are terrible, no question. It's just a list of ways to die, and then she shouts "shoot 'em, bang bang" and I die a little inside.

At least with Casino Royale's theme, even though they didn't use the words "Casino Royale" in the lyrics, it was still clear what movie the song was for. "The odds will betray you," "you can't deny the prize," and so on. Obviously very casino-inspired lyrics. Another Way to Die could be used for any movie that features death, and wouldn't be too out of place.

I'm no fan of Alica Keys, but she actually has a pretty good voice; no autotuning, like so many of today's singers. With better lyrics and a song actually written for her voice, it could have been pretty good. She's no Shirley Bassey, but still... better than Madonna's effort, I think.

Jack White really shouldn't have done vocals for this one, his voice just doesn't compliment Alica's. Had he kept his role purely on the instrumental side of things, I think the song would have been better.

I've never watched Quantum, so I never knew it came from it.
